Our favorites and least favorites:
favorite town: Hood River, Oregon
favorite drive: Mt. Rainier National Forest, Washington
least favorite drive: George Pinchot National Forest, Washington
(we thought we were going to die)
favorite camping spot: Columbia River Gorge, Memaloose State Park
least favorite camping spot: Tillamook, Oregon; Cape Lookout State Park (it rained the whole time so we are biased)
if we could do it again (which we probably will someday): we would spend all of our time in Mt. Rainier National Forest and stay at the Paradise Inn during wildflower season

I've been going through NaNa's pictures on her computer and have come across a lot of her vacation photo's and as well as a few thoughts she journaled. I've determined after reading your blog that you and Chris are mini-me's to NaNa and PaPa and their vacations. Same types of pictures, same thoughts and same type of comments.

You're in good company, I think ;-)
